Enjoy a coffee or beverage on the decking with cosy sitting-out area overlooking the canal. The owner thoughtfully provides complimentary toiletries and slippers, and a welcome pack of freshly baked bread, teas and coffees on arrival. It’s also a perfect bolthole for those visitors seeking to make the most of their visit to sample the pub’s seasonal dishes and famous cocktails. Pop downstairs to sit in the pub’s bustling fairy-lit courtyard or sit alongside the towpath and watch the world go by!

You can find full details of events, sample menus on their website/social media channels.

Roomy, well-equipped and luxurious one bedroom apartment. Above the pub, but it’s not open some days and noise was pretty minimal anyway. Great to walk out the door and hike the canal path. Courteous and cooperative hosts. We would definitely stay again.

This is a lovely apartment. Self check-in was really welcome as we were very late arriving. The place is really beautifully decorated and the bed is massive. Kitchen and bathroom are both really spacious. It's above the pub but we weren't disturbed at all. The location was superb for us and it's super easy to get to. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.
